I did a video rundown test yesterday, which entailed repeatedly playing a
320x240 .ogv file, with the volume turned off, until the battery died down.

I’m leaving on a trip tomorrow, and my Ben NanoNote will be the only
computing device I’ll carry with me, so I was particularly interested in
how much use I could expect to squeeze out of a single charge.

The uptime measured was just a few minutes shy of four hours, which is more
than enough to watch a couple of movies. Guess what I’ll be doing while on
the plane? ;)
